South African apartheid was a filthy business. Class-conscious workers and radicals around the world wanted nothing to do with it. When the all-white Springbok rugby union team toured Australia in 1971, industrial action played a key role in wrecking the games. Even the Australian Council of Trade Unions, much more conservative than the militant unions under its leadership, called on workers to “take whatever action is necessary as an act of conscience to obstruct the tour”. This book is a personal account of unforgettable months written by Stewart Harris, a reporter, and one of the thousands arrested at protests against the tour.
